Schools and communities across LA County have demonstrated profound resilience over the past two decades, weathering an economic recession, moments of social/political upheaval, and a still-ongoing global pandemic. This report, summarizing activities and events from the 2021-22 fiscal year, attests to the enduring importance and longevity of this work.
